Okay, I am not a high fashionista by any means.

I wear suits/shirts for work and at weekends I like to wear jeans or skirt/boots combo.

I usually buy FatFace/Gap or Dot P jeans. Usually long & lean or boy fit.

I need some new boy fit jeans or I could even venture into a straight leg but definately not a skinny leg. Anyone know of any nice styles out there. Had a fruitless trip to Dot P's already this week.

I need a new denim skirt but can't find anything that isn't either masquerading as a belt or "distressed" or covered in patterns/sequens. Any ideas?

I also need some new casual shoes to go with jeans etc. Was considering some Converse, where can I get them?

Can you tell that I A) don't get out much and B) don't have much money LOL.

TIA

Jeans - Gap always has simple, unsequiney styles in.
Converse - From Schuue, or however it is spelt, or Office, or Aspecto or Sole Trader or Soled Out. Schuue and Office have websites.
Skirt - Boden Authentic Denim Skirt here

Have just found some stuff in Next. Moleskin skirt (not quite denim but looks nice), boy fit jeans and they stock Converse.

Will go to Oxford St on way home this arvo otherwise will have to be Kew on Sunday.

Got the boots and tights, love the knee length skirt and boots look.

LOL @ south pacific, I went to the island in Malaysia where they filmed that. Beautiful.

Ta Cod, how's your dsis?

god, that is so poignant. really hope she turns a corner soon and things work out okay for her.

got the converse from footlocker and some boyjeans from next.

no skirt yet, wasn't in stock and they wanted me to pay for it and they would order it in.

apparently it's not in stock anywhere so i will wait for it to get into stock!

what is the use in putting it in the catalogue but not the shops?
